At Valley Smiles, we offer high-quality dental crowns as part of our general dentistry services. As an ideal solution for certain teeth damage, dental crowns can restore function and improve appearance. Our dentist’s office located in North Phoenix, AZ, provides top-quality care for everyone.
Dental crowns cover the entirety of a tooth. They are used to restore the function and appearance of a tooth that has been damaged by decay, injury, or wear and tear. There are many different types of dental crowns, such as porcelain, metal, or porcelain-metal fused. Luckily, crowns can be matched to the color of your natural teeth, making them basically undetectable. The use of teeth crowns can vary depending on a patient’s needs. If you have a tooth that is cracked, chipped, discolored, or misshapen, a dental crown can be the perfect solution. In some cases, crowns are also used to support dental implants.
Porcelain dental crowns are made to match the color of your natural teeth. They are often used for front teeth or more visible teeth.
Gold dental crowns are not as common as other types of dental crowns. They are usually used for back teeth because they are less likely to wear down over time.
3. Stainless steel
Stainless steel dental crowns are often used as a temporary measure for children who have a baby tooth that needs to be replaced.
4. Porcelain-metal fused crowns
Porcelain fused with metal crowns offers some of the durability aspects of metal dental crowns. They also offer positive appearance qualities that are found in ceramic crowns.
If you think you might need a dental crown, the first step is to schedule an appointment with our Valley Smiles dental professionals. During your appointment, we will examine your tooth and take X-rays to determine if a crown is the best treatment option. If a crown is recommended, your tooth will be prepared for the procedure. With proper care, your dental crown can last for many years.
It may be time to restore a damaged tooth or two with non-invasive dental crowns. The caring team at Valley Smiles is ready to provide top-level care to families in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Contact us to schedule an appointment.
